timing belt change parts needed etc

I posted before but I don't see any post here or current atleast. I called a few places up and I have a few questions

#1 Do I need to replace the Idler Roller pulley?
#2 Do I need to replace the Tensioner rolley pulley?

I looked on ebay for OEM parts and they had a list in a package. I called Honda/Acura and I believe those 2 above are not included in their package deal for around $1350 to do the timing belt change. I also thought that spark plugs were included in the deal. They are saying another $400 more to change out the spark plugs. I am leaning toward buying the OEM package from ebay for $325 then buying sparkplugs on ebay for $85-$95 and paying their $120-$180 labor fee.
according to the package it contains the following:
Timing Belt
Idler roller pully
Tensioner Roller Pulley
Water Pump and gasket
Hydraulic tensionier
Front camshaft seals X2
Front Crankshaft seal

it's a good idea to replace pulleys and tensioners because they can seize over time.
would suck if you changed the belt but then have a pulley seize down the road later .
